Excellent tool. i feel kinda bad that i didnt pay anything for it though :/ but its much better than minecraft structer planner. their pixel art tool is quite shocking. especially if you only want certain colours or blocks. Great work
Thank you for including the link to download the full version for free in your webpage source. If anyone else wants the full version, here you go. Click me.
Ha ha... man I've been pretty cordial in these posts... but this one is WAY too obnoxious to let slip. Let me just say three things:
1) You can ALWAYS get the tool free without entering any personal information by entering $0 on the pay page, so there is no point in trying to "cheat" us by bypassing the main pages.
2) Your little cheat doesn't actually work. It only works if you have already visited the pay page in the current session. For the vast majority of people, clicking your link will just redirect to our main page. I'm not the brightest guy in the world, but I'm not THAT stupid.
3) Believe it or not, we worked hard on this (and still are... updates coming people I swear!). We aren't being "evil" - we are giving this away for free to anyone who wants it and asking for donations from those who are willing. Why are you trying to cheat us? Not cool.
In summary, this little hack is pointless, doesn't work, and just the fact that you are trying to do this is totally uncool.
Need help!! :biggrin.gif: I downloaded it, now all I see is a bunch of files, how do I run it? thanks
A couple people seem to have this problem. Here is some advice from earlier in the thread that may help:
"When you double-click "Spritecraft(Free/Full).jar" it should run like an exe and pop up the first window you see in the OP. You shouldn't see a folder with files like ".svn" "bin" or whatever you see in there.
One thing you could try is running it from command line with the command -jar like this: "java -jar SpritecraftFull.jar"
One that looks promising:
"Another way to do this is to left-click the .jar file, and select the "open with..." option.
-If the open with don't show in the left-click menu, try holding shift while clicking.
-Select javaw.exe as above, and see if it runs."
I cannot wait for the schematic update. I was messing around with this thing for awhile today, and made some images that were huge, and zoomed in on them and was amazed at how all the blocks could make an actual picture.
Ok, first thing's first: Amazing job with this. It's absolutely fantastic! I love seeing how some of my images look in Minecraft form... Even though they look the exact same, until I zoom in.
Something to note would be a feature that tells you the dimensions of the image. That way people can plan out how much space it will take and look for spots where it'll fit. I'm not a big fan of using MCEdit, I go the traditional route and rely on the hand pickaxe to get things done, so I'm without knowing how much space it'll take. Just giving the dimensions of width and height in blocks would be so handy.
Another thing would be the total blocks needed. Which would go hand-in-hand with the dimensions, just multiply the height by the width and you have a nice number to show people how much work they'll need to do. again, handy for those lacking MCEdit.
I have absolutely no problem with the program, but there will always be something that somebody will want to see, and that's what I'd like to see in this tool. Great jobs guys!
Just a minor update - all Spritecraft purchases and donations go straight to Child's Play charity now. So feel free to get generous, or continue to download full for free. Pretty much nothing has changed except the money goes to charity now!
EDIT: Duh, the program looks at the dimensions of the image rather than the dimensions of what's inside the image. I found a smaller version and got better results.
I'm running into a bit of trouble when trying to convert small, simple, pixel images.
I am trying to blueprint out a Kefka sprite:
I counted the number of pixels of width and height and came out to 16 x 24, respectively. Yet when I use those dimensions in Spritecraft, I receive this:
Also, when I increase the dimensions to perhaps better accommodate the program, it adds shades in that are unnecessary.
I get the idea of the program: it is more designed to turn real images to blocks rather than pixelated images, but I'm trying to use it for the latter, and I'm running into difficulties.
Kefka!! What are you doing here?!
